About Generation PRX

Generation PRX supports youth-produced radio. We help youth radio groups share their work through the Public Radio Exchange (PRX), provide a space for training and feedback and bring stations to PRX to listen, license, and ultimately, broadcast.

Led by youth voices and youth leaders, Generation PRX is dedicated to youth radio distribution. We support youth producers and teachers to help listeners discover the next generation of sound. Learn more:

What We Do

Create an interactive network
Working with an advisory board of seasoned broadcasters and experienced youth radio producers and leaders, we've created an online space for youth radio groups to share ideas, strategies and materials.

Develop peer feedback to help producers edit and improve work
Through the online network, trained Youth Editorial Board members and Generation PRX members provide review and feedback to their peers.

Build a catalogue of youth-produced radio
As young producers upload their pieces, they help build an online catalogue of youth radio, the first anywhere. This storehouse provides a shared and growing body of content accessible to stations, producers and listeners through PRX.

Generation PRX is advocating for greater broadcast of youth-produced radio and exploring new channels for distribution through PRX partnerships with iTunes, satellite radio, Audible, podcasting and internet streaming.
